Its deplorable and disheartening to see the recent trend is anti-AAPI hate crimes across the US. While many of us are lucky to not be physically harmed, emotional stress, micro-aggressions, racism, gaslighting and stereotyping have always existed. On a positive swing of things, how have you overcome this adversity? How have you developed allies? How have you overcome the "bamboo ceiling"? Looking for stories of victories in calling out racism.
Anyone have any idea what starting salary would be at Morgan and Morgan for a 4th year attorney in Orlando? What’s the commission/bonus like? Would you get to handle your own cases or are you working under a partner still? Defense attorney seeking to make the move to Plaintiff’s work.
I am scared to take a medical leave of absence for depression / burnout even though I know and my therapist agrees it would be the best thing for me to do right now. I feel like I will be removed from my current team and I will be marked in the office as “weak” (even though I was rated 2 and then 1 for PYs) and it will ruin my chances of being promoted to senior next July. Are my fears valid? Will this medical LOA derail my career progression? Or am I thinking about it the wrong way?

I have been using this emoji 🙏 and saying to so many colleagues and clients “I’ll pray for you” with such warm and genuine receipt that I think sometimes God uses hopelessness to open people’s hearts to Him. I’ve spoken about my faith to work people more than I ever have in my 20 year career. In such a dark time, what a light prayer can be for our coworkers and clients.

anyone have a SO who went to business school while you stayed in consulting? or vice versa? my bf is applying this fall and I’m irrationally worried about how it will affect us
I just graduated this past May with a degree in computer science and accepted first job offer as an engineer at 84k no bonus in Massachusetts. However, I keep hearing that people are getting 150k-250k (includes bonuses) as an entry level salary. What are your thoughts on that? Is 84k as a first job salary good in MA?
Best spg properties in Peru? Have any of you stayed near machu Pichu or was it Cusco + bus?
I am fully aware that this is not “normal” which is why I’m posting it here where I think people might understand.
Anyone ever wish for a short hospital stay to just catch a fully excused break from work? I’m tired of keeping all these balls in the air.
I obviously know especially in this climate hospitals are the worst place to be - but I guess I just mean generally. How else can you get a fully detached break from this non-stop life?
I’m finally watching Indian matchmaking - and honestly I think this style of introducing people based on families, matchmaker should be way more common. So many people make terrible partner choices. More Sima Aunties!
What is life like living without anxiety, depression, and imposter syndrome?
Do you not have to sigh every other minute just to make sure you are breathing? How about constantly saying “you’re okay, it’s okay” to yourself? Do you not have to worry about intruding thoughts saying that “you don’t belong here”? You probably don’t have to worry about feeling like crying all the time, right?
Has anyone gotten their F-1 Visa or any visa renewed from Mexico or Canada instead of their home country? If yes, how was the experience
On the other end of a job where, despite my best efforts, I’m really unhappy with the quality of work I was given. I kept thinking if I pushed and proved myself I would get to do the work the “boys’ club” got to do - TV! broadcast! experiential! 360 campaigns! All of which I know I could be amazing at. Instead I got meh work for years. But I want to stay positive. This new stage of my career is exciting! So now - how do I go after all the experience I want?

Has anyone ever come out to their parents? How’d you do it? I’m 33, and I think I’m ready. I just don’t want to hurt them.
This may get heated, but what does everyone think of the ongoing HK pro-democracy protest?
If you have a “no shoes in the house” rule, do you also have a “no bare feet outside” rule? That seems like the same thing to me but I’m curious if you all see it that way too..
Was considering moving to NYC but being an Asian female and seeing all the hate crimes against Asian females makes me nervous 😞 wanted to get a sense if this fear is warranted
Have a question to Asians here. I’m mid-30s from Asia and am making lower end of 6 figures currently. My older sister was making more than I did until a few months back and lost one job due to covid so is now not making much. But she is married and has a house and a car of her own. She spends a lot of money on herself and buys gifts to her boyfriends/lovers. I just found out mom is going through major surgery in my home country and it costs nearly 6k. I asked if she wanted us to help her pay.
Am I crazy for strongly considering doing this? My Mom decided to sell her house and move down here near me in a tier 2 city in terms of cost. Housing options for just herself with her medical conditions just don't see very great. So we found a new home builder in an amazing location with huge lot sizes that also offer "multi-generational" extensions so my Mom can have her own space and I can still have some degree of separation.
The catch is I'll need to sell my house too...cont
What are the least racist English speaking countries? Hear Canada is pretty bad despite a sizeable Asian population. Looking into moving out of the US due to gun violence and white Christian nationalism. Unfortunately, I can’t speak any Asian languages so Asia’s out of the question.
Did anyone actually like the live action version of Mulan? I feel like it was so cringe. Def a fan of the cartoon over this. I wish they did a more faithful adaption like they did for Aladdin 😭

Prop 16 didn’t pass! 🥳 I recall seeing a Facebook picture of us captioned “do you want your school to look like Berkeley? vote yes on prop 16.” The sentiment around this was incredibly racist.
Does anyone have tips for online dating?
Partner Track was so relatable - all the micro aggressions and straight up racism/sexism.
